    Hello all, this is my first post and i was wondering if anyone knew where I could get any roms? (joking joking!! sorry, I cant help myself)

    What its really about is a couple of small things with my new baby, I upgraded from a m3ds simply with 2 gig card to a 6 gig carded M3 REAL, so far so good, the interface is a bit cumbersome now, admittedly before it had three buttons so anything at all would be a big change, but aside form that the only real problems are:

    1) I copied my folder of music from my Simply and now when I try to use the new media player (dont like it >:( ) it freezes when i try to open the music folder

    2) I cant figure out how to make the media button open moonshell like it should, before the middle button just opened _DS_MSHL.NDS and everything was loverly now it opens the new media player, that plays some other arbitrary video file format (I'l be damned if I'm going to re encode Yugioh the abridged series twice!... that took ages)

    3) I couldnt get the GBA games to keep their saves, but upon further reading on this forum i can now (huzzah) but by buggery does Kingom Hearts Chain of Memories take an AGE to load, any way around that or do i just need to be patient given i'm playing something for free (quite reasonable when I think about it)

    4) whats with the empty space on the bottom right in the set of icons when you start it up, is there a way of putting a custom game shortcut there, or possibly customising the whole kit&kaboodle? or is it just because 7 is a prime number? (likely now that i think about it)

    5) why do hotdog franks come in packs of eight and the buns in packs of six, who in their right mind (or left ventricle) would want to eat 24 hotdogs in one sitting? is this a way of killing people bad at maths using heart disease and bowel cancer?

    I can answer two of your questions:
    2/ I dont know how to change it to launch moonshell but the bundled media player can play dpg files (moonshell video) fine, so you wont have to re-encode.

    3/ The loading is abit of a bummer but it is something you have to live with, if you want speedier loading why not use your original cart you made the backup from [​IMG] . And this does happen with every gba expansion card which uses volatile RAM to store the games. The EZ-3in1 can store the games on the RAM permanently but it is even slower flashing and personally i like the way in which the M3 GBA loader is intergrated into the firmware, something you dont get with 3in1.

    As for GBA save, make sure that after you played a Gba game turn the ds back on and go to the GBA menu again. You will see a message "processing" it's actually transferring the SRAM save onto the main storage.

    ahh groovy thankyou all, yeah the GBA save problem seems to just be a teething one, since when you get it the battery in the slot 2 card is completely flat, but it charges in a matter of an hour or so, so that one invariably sorts itself out unless you use your DS incredibly rarely, but then if you dont use your DS much why would you buy a flashcard lol?

    oh and while the new media player may play DPGs it doesn't play the most recent type of DPGs that only the newer moonshell plays

    Does anyone have an idea why it wont play my folder-O-songs, is there maybe a limit to the amount of files it can cope with in a folder at once (I have booted moonshell on the card in question and it plays them fine) or is it maybe filename length? or some yet unrecognised problem, because as soon as i press the button on the folder it just freezes up and packs it in

    also is there any way tp change the listing of roms to the old way of doing it, I think while it looks cool to see the icons, only being able to view 4 at a time is a little tedious
